Critics reviews

The characters are so complexly imagined we can’t comfortably judge them or feel any moral certainty about who they are. We can’t even know for sure who the film’s leading character is — there are at least three candidates. All this edginess, combined with the grandeur and sweep of a classic western, demonstrates that Jones clearly knows how to tell a story — and how to confound us at the same time.
